Blog

Every plate of food is the center of a story.

It’s at the center of our dinner tables: an essential human experience where we connect with our friends and family. But it’s also at the center of a story that connects each of us to farmers, producers, suppliers, grocers, and other families around the world.

Bayer: Using Unprecedented Insights in Unexpected Ways on the Farm

Summary: 

What’s the value of data? Well, like any other tool, it depends on how you use it.

But perhaps the most powerful aspect of data is that farms around the world already produce it. They always have. And now, it’s becoming easier for farmers to benefit from it.
